Several of you have asked me about great games to play with your friends. I’d like to clue you into a fantastic little board game called Blokus.

The easiest way to describe this gem of a game is to say it’s little like Tetris with a healthy helping of Chess mixed in. There are four colored sets of blocks: red, blue, green, and yellow. Each set has 15 tiles of varying sizes and configurations. The goal of each player is to get all your blocks on the board.

Sounds easy, right?

The catch is that you can only place your pieces on the board with each piece only touching the corners (not the sides) of your own pieces. Each color moves in sequence, one piece at a time.

The game is for 2 to 4 players.

I cannot recommend this game enough. It is easy to pick and learn and it will provide hours of entertainment for young and old alike.
